Default Re: Question -- Pionner/Universal Blu-Ray Discs

Has anyone else experienced this issue and, if so, can you provide me with a solution to eliminate these icons?

Incidentally, while the Pioneer looks good in my rack, I feel this unit is glitchy, slow and over-priced. My primary reason for this purchase is I have a Lexicon MC-12B pre-pro and the salesman stated that this Pioneer internally decoded all audio formats and output them via both HDMI and analog outputs, including DTS Master Audio. Unfortunately, it does not yet fully output DTS-MA through its analog circuitry. I am advised that a firmware update will eventually solve this issue, but have not been provided a firm date for this resolution.

I wish I had seen the Panasonic DMP BD-55 reviews before buying the Pioneer.

Thanks for any help regarding the icon issue.
Hey Chief, that icon you see on the screen is tied to the Bonus View option if I'm not mistaken. Its turned on by default. your manual should be able to show you how to turn it off. I have the BDP-51FD, it did the same thing.
